I'll play games at an increased difficulty level for completely new content, play bonus content that's harder than the main game, or even just pick the highest difficulty level at the outset if a game works on mechanics I'm already familiar with, but the idea of playing a story-based game over again on The Same But More mode just strikes me as monotonous.
I have pretty mixed feelings about this game. On the one hand, the combat was interesting and required some real application of judgment. On the other hand, the integration
with the story mode was terrible; it's just unsatisfying being unable to keep an eye on stats, organize or view your troops or manage resources, raise levels, etc. except when you're actually in the middle of a battle. Also I found that it got less challenging as it went on, until the very last fight, instead of gradually building up difficulty.
The story took turns I wasn't expecting, and having the main character become an immortal wanderer of worlds instead of going back to his regular life on Earth plus some life lessons
was kind of refreshing, but the idea that they can only fight the negative influences of other Eternals and not try and change things for the better of their own initiative
seems really stupid to me. There was kind of a mixed message going on there, since on the one hand Yuuto thinks that by destroying the sword Rebirth, they're essentially changing fate, but at other times he and the other Chaos Eternals espouse a policy of "it's wrong to change the natural course of a world even if the natural course is bad." There might be some sort of coherent code of ethics that could account for this discrepancy, but not, I don't think, a sane one. I'd have been much happier if they hadn't run so far with Villains Act, Heroes React, and let the good guys have a policy of actually doing good of their own initiative.
I don't think I'd particularly want to see the sex scenes in this game, and in Kamidori they made the game about 500% stupider, but I'm still
a bit miffed that I had no choice in whether or not I'd be able to see them. I guess I'm just unpleasable.
...eventually, we will reach a maximum entropy state where nobody has their own socks or underwear, or knows who to ask to get them back.
